Practical homeschooling tools including transcript management, testing and assessment, standards creation (yes, creation) and alignment, and schedule creation.
Black Teachers and organizations dedicated to the educational aspirations and challenges of children of the African Diaspora through live streamed and pre-recorded content,
Educational, entrepreneurial, artistic and literary content - materials reflective of our children for immediate free and paid download or online use, and
Daily access to tips on homeschooling, dealing with state and local authorities, and other supports.
DragonSTEAM Guild - an interactive Youth STEAM Project - We have begun development of a cross-platform mobile game and transmedia experience that creates an engaging interactive game environment with protagonists that reflects our diversity, a compelling mission, and skill and knowledge-based prompts and challenges along the way. YOUTH TECH TEAM HELP WANTED.
THE ANANSI MAZE Curricular Material
Also for this age group, I am personally creating academic content for 3rd - 6th grade around my literary work, currently my novel "The Anansi Maze" (2018), available on Amazon.
FOR BLACK CHILDREN Ages 3 -7: ABCs ACROSS THE DIASPORA - PreK-2 Literacy Content
We are linking access to content - as well as CREATING content - that reflects our diversity and builds solid reading and math skills, the basis of all further learning. OUR FUNDING - We are welcoming Sponsors, Members, Supporters, any who want to strengthen this resource. We are currently completely funded through memberships and out-of-pocket, with future profits of my newly-launched holiday business aptly featuring traditional African-American sweet potato pie. (Yes.) Mrs. Davenport's Sweet Potato Pie.
YOUR MEMBERSHIP & PATRONAGE SUPPORT IS CRITICAL.
We have to do this ourselves.
Your memberships will support purchasing new or refurbished computer equipment, LMS training, communication, supporting, and building capacity for Black teachers to tutor online, time spent connecting tutoring co-ops and organizations already involved on the local and state level, and allowing me to create artistic and educational content full-time to serve our families.
Right now, I am funding Diaspora Academy, a socially entrepreneurial venture, through my own means in partnership with Patreon, including teaching, tutoring, selling my sweet potato pies (Yes! Right here.) Whatever it takes.
DO YOU BELIEVE ALL OUR CHILDREN CAN SUCCEED? YES! Please become a member and show your support.
